Please share and let the world know what is happening here in thailand right now.
tomorrow (monday 19th march 2018 ) a mass rounding up of dogs will take place in hua hin thailand because one man died from a cat bite. plainly s****d reasoning to k**l on such a scale especially when it goes against there fundamental buddhist beliefs. all these dogs pictured are spayed vaccinated and healthy.
the reason the dog population is out of control is because locals superstitiously believe if you spay your dog it affects your ability to have children. this is a problem created by humans. it would be more compassionate of the government to have a mass spay and neuter and vaccination program rather than killing them which goes against there buddhist beliefs (ahimsa). and killing them does not stop the spread because rabies is carried by many animals including rats and monkeys. it is not only plainly wrong to poison healthy dogs it is ineffective. the only way to test for rabies is brain tissue from a dead animal so there claim these dogs are infected is a lie. try getting a suffering pet put down in this country, it's almost impossible because of that belief. so how do they justify this. thank you fellow rescuer jane key for permission to use the photos.
